“Today we welcome the families and individuals that have served our country in Afghanistan,” said Wales’ Social Justice Minister Jane Hutt.

She added: “All local authorities in Wales are participating in these schemes and have offered their support and assistance to the Afghan citizens who are being resettled in the UK.”

The Urdd youth organisation is providing initial accommodation before other properties are found. 

Its chief executive, Sian Lewis, said: “As an organisation, we are proud to help and continue to share with our members the importance of loyalty to country and culture but also to humanity and a higher good: We have a moral obligation as a national youth organisation to support humanitarian projects and offer a hand of friendship and support to the Afghan community in their time of need.”

Colonel Sion Walker from the 160th (Welsh) Brigade said: “There are direct historical links with Wales-based and Wales-facing units and members of many of those families coming to Wales: They will have worked alongside each other during very difficult times in Afghanistan; our involvement is recognition of the support given and comradeships developed during those times and we are proud to have played a part in making Wales a nation of sanctuary.”
